framing suggestion:
The artist and sculptor Maggie Hambling's iconic piece 'Scallop' was installed on the beach in
Aldebugh in 2003, causing considerable controversy at the time (and since). It's claimed it
'spoils' the beach, or is a health and safety liability (it's built to withstand 100mph winds), or is
just plain ugly. As it's situated well away from the main part of Aldeburgh, on an otherwise
mostly deserted beach, and commemorates a line from Benjamin Britten's opera 'Peter
Grimes', a tragedy at sea off the Suffolk coast, it seems to me to be entirely appropriate, and
one of a number of attractions bringing people into this otherwise fairly remote Suffolk town.
Nothing is ever to everyone's taste, but some people make an awful lot of fuss when
presented with something 'new'. 'Scallop', thankfully, is still there, and I think a lot of people
would miss it if it were taken away: it's a local landmark whether you like it or not. The
inscription reads "I hear those voices that will not be drowned", and 'Peter Grimes' is itself
regularly performed by opera groups on this very beach.
My own style, if it can be said I have one, is to try to photograph things 'differently', and I
think I've achieved that with this close up of part of the cut-out inscription.
